The Same Idea
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements 😉
What if you discovered a newly released book by a famous author was significantly similar to the novel you just finished writing?
No, the famous author didn't steal your idea, nor vice versa. There's no plagiarism involved.
Not that this has happened to me... At least, not just...
